HOW FAR SHOULD TACK STRIP BE AWAY FROM THE WALL WHEN INSTALLING CARPET?
Once you have selected your carpetmeasured your stairs to calculate how much carpet you needand purchased your new carpet and underpad, you are ready to begin prepping your stairs for installation. This article includes instructions on how to prep stairs for installation of carpet covering the full stair. However, if you are looking to install a carpet runner on your stairs, the following instructions can be modified accordingly. There are a couple of specialty tools you will need to install carpet on stairs, in addition to the basic utility knife and measuring tape.
Tack strips are designed to grab hold of the edge of a carpet and hold it to the floor around the perimeter of the room. This means you don't have to tack the carpet directly to the floor, and it helps tuck the carpet under the wall edge. Always make sure to wear adequate eye protection when working with a miter saw. Pieces of wood or debris can fly out of the wood fence and into your eyes.
